I am Anamaria, a counsellor & psychotherapist, offering long and short-term counselling from the area of Greater Manchester and Cheshire.
You may be here because you are taking small, yet overwhelming steps in looking after yourself, and putting your wellbeing first. I know from experience that reaching out is emotionally demanding, to say the least. If this sounds like what you are going through, I hope you can give yourself permission to acknowledge these steps you are bravely taking right now.
Depending on our sense of safety and the support around us, we may feel prepared to handle life challenges most of the time. But for those times when we feel overwhelmed, confused, or completely burnt out, we can use a bit of support in finding our feet.
This website will hopefully give you an idea about how I work as a counsellor and whether we could work together. If you would like to get in touch to book a first initial consultation, or if you have any inquiries, please feel free to use the following contact details:

Here's a little bit about how I work.
I offer a therapeutic space where you can feel validated and heard, by bringing a caring and genuine approach to our work together. My belief is that we all experience sadness, loss, trauma, happiness, joy - everything - in our own way. I use my counselling training to help clients understand past and current life circumstances, in a safe and trusting environment.
I have experience in supporting clients from multicultural and multilingual backgrounds, as well as clients who identify as neurodivergent. I am also a trauma-informed practitioner, having worked extensively with survivors of neglect, emotional, sexual, and/or domestic abuse within various organisations across the UK.
Our counselling sessions will be guided by what brings you to therapy, and I look forward to working with you. We will work together to explore any difficulties or barriers you may be facing. My role is to support you in finding out healing and growth may look like for you, and how you can create a fulfilling and authentic experience for yourself.
